Upper Quadrant Dynamic Stability/Kinetic Control
- By Mark Comerford
Mark Comerford ExercisesThese Mark Comerford exercises are compiled to help the therapist provide instruction to the client on therapeutic or corrective movement of the upper quadrant.
The Mark Comerfod exercises are designed for use by the therapist who has an understanding or is familiar with dynamic stability/kinetic control or movement dysfunction concepts. The exercises are done in different positions and include control neutral, control direction (flexion, abduction, rotation), control range and stretches for upper trapezius, gleno-humeral medial rotators, gleno-humeral lateral rotators, gleno-humeral abductors, latissimus dorsi, pectoralis minor clavicular head, pectoralis major sternal head, pectoralisa minor, rhomboids, levator scapulae, anterior scalene, middle scalene, posterior scalene and sterno-cleido-mastoid. The concept of dynamic stability/kinetic control and the analysis and correction of movement dysfunction is an ongoing process of development based on clinical application and an increasing body of academic research.
